Inspirational Sayings: Man on Top
Inspirational Sayings are one of my favorite “down-time” activities on Pinterest, like MY INSPIRATIONAL SAYINGS BOARD which is one of my favorites.
The photo I used to create this inspirational sayings poster was from my summit of the Carstensz Pyramid on 30 April 2013. At the time I thought I had a cracked rib, but it was damaged sternum cartilage and torn intercostal muscles (as diagnosed by physicians in Tembagapura, Papua, Indonesia, and Orem, Utah, USA). It was a tough upward battle of mind over muscle as each pull upward with my right arm, and each downward rappel braking motion shot waves of agony through my chest. I wrote about it in my book Carstensz, Stone Age to Iron Age CLICK HERE.
Inspirational Sayings in your life
Several people have consulted with me on success topics, from money to health to fitness to athletic goals. I have encouraged some to create their own Pinterest boards of inspirational sayings that are especially meaningful to their situation. One of the cool things about being human is that we have the wealth of the wisdom of all of our ancestors available to us. We don’t have to reinvent the wheel every time we want to go anywhere.
It’s the law of cause and effect at work. If we empty our bank account, the effect is that we can’t pay our bills. If we don’t work out the effect is that we don’t improve our fitness. That could lead to a more long-term effect like poor health and an early demise. Inspirational sayings are one way that we can exploit that wisdom.
The Man on Top of the Mountain Didn’t Fall There
– Vince Lombardi
If you want to be on top of the mountain, you don’t fall there. You climb there. It takes work. It takes effort. It takes training. It takes skills. If along the path you do fall, you get right back up and regain your ground and keep moving till you reach the summit. I’m available to offer support.
Speaking of support, reaching the summit, and training, do you remember my “Couch to Colorado Fourteener” ebook sample? After getting some feedback from some of the more vocal readers I have made several revisions and am almost ready to publish it as a training program. If you’re interested, drop me a note in the comments section and I’ll get some more details up for you.
